The electrical energy sector in the U.S. economy is organized on the basis of a number of specific geographic regions, each served by an individual electric utility franchised and legally bound to supply electric power within the area. A study of the aggregate growth of the electrical energy sector within the nation must, therefore, necessarily be based on specific factors influencing each region as a unit of the whole. Most econometric models in this field have concentrated on representing the national aggregate only, and have generally not included the various specific feedback effects characterizing the growth of the electrical energy sector on a dynamic basis.
